Many witnesses and victims are intoxicated, but few studies have examined how alcohol affects memory. The present study compared the effects of different interview approaches on intoxicated witnesses’ recall of an interactive event. Participants were randomly assigned to a condition within a 3 (Intoxication level: sober vs. placebo vs. intoxicated) x 3 (Interview technique: positive vs. negative vs. mixed) between-participants design. Participants consumed 3 beverages, were involved in an interactive event, and were interviewed immediately after the event using either positive, negative or mixed interviewing approaches. Data-collection is currently ongoing; preliminary findings and implications will be discussed.
